Many of us may be leaving out the step of our skincare routine: cleansing before bed. You’re not alone. In a recent survey, a third of women skips the facial cleanse before going to bed twice weekly.
Why it is important to have a facial cleanse before bed?
The face keeps touching the world, the pollutants, the dirt and bacteria during the day. If we don’t wash it before bed, dirt would clog our pores; bacteria would grow settling into our pores. My poor pores!
What scientists found? The skin has a rare opportunity to breathe and be replenished while you’re asleep. Professor Weaver from University of Massachusetts Medical School states that our body circadian rhythm makes the use of products before you sleep more effective. Skipping facial cleanse, our skin would be aged over a decade at the end. It could become an irreversible damage!
Why we should have a facial cleanse in the morning?
Dear friends, there are at least three reasons.
- Remove the unwanted environmental pollutants, such as from our pillowcase, carpet, fireplace etc.
- Remove the accumulated skin-producing face oil and debris.
- Prepare the skin to use the facial treatment products.
So all beauty therapists educate their clients to wash face twice every day. If you still feel too dry or rude to have both bedtime and morning face wash every day, I don’t recommend you to skip one of them. The problem may be with the cleanser you’ve been using.
I would choose KATHLEEN® the newest cleansing lotion that gently lifts dirt, oil, makeup and impurities, without drying the skin.
KATHLEEN® Refreshing & Lightening Cleansing Lotion contains 6 active botanical ingredients including anti-inflammatory and antibiotic organic tamanu seed oil that works together with organic glycerin to gently clean and moisturize the skin. Fatty acids and vitamin-E-rich avocado oil, used in this cleanser, instantly soften the skin and reduce the incidence of skin spots and the vitamin C rich lemon, floral rose and lavender works in synergy to refresh and lightening your complexion. Suitable to very sensitive skin!
Do you know you need the exfoliation of dead cells for any skin type?
Exfoliation of dead cells produces an immediate and noticeable improvement in the appearance of skin. There are 2 popular types of exfoliation – chemical and physical. Chemical exfoliation is not to be used by people with sensitive skins. But physical exfoliation that uses cream with beads would also too harsh for sensitive skin. Another biggest disadvantage of this beads exfoliation, regardless of age and skin type, is the beads are not biodegradable that affect the environment.
You will want to carefully choose an exfoliation method that is so gentle to remove the dead cells but not to eliminate and hurt your living cells!
KATHLEEN® 150 ml cleansing lotion also supply with 2 gauze muslin face cloth which is made of the finest cotton fabric that can gently exfoliation, lifting away the makeup and dead skin cells without damaging the living cells, leaving your skin instantly glow.
